Summer Giveaways in Mel’s World

Summer is HERE in Mel’s World and well, I am just too stinkin’ excited!!! This is my first summer back as a Work at Home Mom (after 5 years of working at church) and I can’t wait to spend the hours hanging out with my boys, getting to know them as young men, getting them ready for the next school year (my oldest goes to HIGH SCHOOL next year…eek!!!), and spending a ton of great quality family time.

As you may or may not know I am working from home these days doing internet marketing for my own travel company (Money4Vacation). I have designed a blog called, Mel’s World Travel Biz, to share with you all tons of information about having your own home based business, the tax benefits, money saving tips on your travel, and information about the company I am working with (YTB, Inc.). To launch my business blog re-design (thanks Revka at RS Designs) and celebrate the Summer of 2008 I am hosting a three month give away. (Here’s where the crowd goes W-I-L-D!)

So…to celebrate summer with me here’s what you need to do if you want to play along with us…

Each and every month I will post the Giveaway for that month. You can make extra opportunities to be in the give away by doing the following:

1) Make a comment on the Giveaway post.
… I LOVE comments from my bloggy buddies!

2) Add the “Speak to My Soul Sunday” button up on your blog and add another comment to the post mentioning you put this button up.

Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket

3) Add the Mel’s World Travel Tips & Ideas button up on your blog and add another comment to the post mentioning you put this button up.

4) Add the Mel’s World Travel Biz button up on your blog and add another comment to the post mentioning you put this button up.

(All of the Buttons can be picked up on the side bar here in Mel’s World)
WOW…instead of one comment per person you have the opportunity to put your name in the hat four times…and yes, if you put all the buttons up in June, they WILL count for July and August as well. (I thought you might ask…*wink wink*)
